Unlike the UFC and PFL which rely on USADA as their Anti-doping enforcement programs, Bellator MMA works with American Boxing Commissions head Mike Mazzulli of the Mohegan Sun Tribe to facilitate the regulation of performance enhancement substances and their use in it’s athletes.
During a recent discussion with USATODAY reporter Nolan King Mike Mazzulli revealed that both Cat Zingano and Cris Cyborg passed a random WADA out of competition drug test looking for PED usage recently.

Zingano who has called “Cyborg a Bully” was the first to accuse the Champion of being a cheater despite Cris having won a UFC belt in the USADA testing program and completing all of the same BELLATOR MMA test without ever having issue.
With the results being made public Cyborg had this to say, “Nobody should be rewarded for doing what they are supposed to be doing, I am happy Cat Zingano can be reassured and am hopeful to get a contract and be able to announce this fight soon.”
While no official fight date or location has been named it is speculated that Cyborg Vs Zingano will appear as a feature fight on the Bellator 300 event rumored to be scheduled for Oct.
